Dozens of lakecity community members turned out to help the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 139 celebrate its 85th birthday.
Since its establishment in the middle of the Great Depression, the local Legion has been committed to supporting veterans and their families through programming, funding and simply providing a place for them to gather together.
As time has gone on, they’ve kept to that commitment while also using their membership and influence to raise money to support local initiatives that benefit the youth of the lakecity.
All those gathered at the Legion were in good spirits as they recalled the old times over a few pints of beer and glasses of wine. Afterwards, they were treated to an Italian supper followed by cake, a fun quiz game and an evening performance by the Markabillies.
